The Bay Run returns to the beautiful town of Bantry this May Bank Holiday Weekend and its bigger and better than ever.
This year’s programme includes a full marathon as well as a half-marathon, a 10km run and the popular 3km family fun run. The full marathon, half-marathon and 10Km run all take place on Sunday, May 3 and the hugely popular Family Fun Run will take place on Saturday, May 2.
The Bay run is organised by the team at The Maritime Hotel and the proceeds from all four events will be donated to Bantry Hospice.
“We are very excited to add a full marathon to this year’s Bay Run and we expect registration for it to fill up fast. It will be a great addition to the festivities,” says Jason O’Sullivan, Leisure Manager at The Maritime Hotel.
“We are also encouraging more families to get involved and have made the family fun run free to anyone who registers for any of the other events.”
Last year’s Bay Run was the first organised and managed by the team at The Maritime Hotel and it was hailed as a great success by the organisers and participants alike. Almost 700 entrants took part and raised over €8000 for the Bantry Hospice and various local and national charities.
Registration for all four events is now open. For further information or to register for The Bay Run visit www.bayrun.ie or find us on facebook at www.facebook.com/Bayrun.
